Monday Funday Sketch #2

It's another Monday Funday at the TGF Farm Fresh Challenge blog!  Today's challenge is a sketch by our own, Margie Cortina
The base of the card is Chocolate Chip with layers of Very Vanilla and Old Olive.  I took the sketch and rotated it on its side.  The Very Vanilla layer is dry embossed with the Cuttlebug polka dot folder.  The scalloped border is Whisper White with brown polka dot grosgrain ribbon.  The image is Navajo Anya and is colored in copic.  I masked over top of her, then stamped a medallion over top, then embossed in clear embossing powder.  Once cooled, I sponged olive chalk ink over top, then cut with a classic oval nestabilities, then mounted over the scalloped oval with dimensionals.  The scalloped oval is from Cricut's Ashlyn Alphabet in Pumpkin Pie.  The sentiment is stamped in olive chalk ink on Very Vanilla, then punched with the wide oval and mounted over the decorative label punch.  I added a couple of pearls to the sentiment.  The card is an easel style but displayed on its side.  The inside is decorated with leaves stamped in Whisper White craft and embossed with clear powder.  Once cooled, they are cut out and mounted on dimensionals.  I used a scrap of Early Espresso baker's twine to tie on the brown leaf.  The medallion, leaves and sentiment are from SU's Day of Gratitude set. 
Now, head on over to the TGF Farm Fresh Challenge blog and play along!  Thanks for looking!  April

Hi April!
I just had to come by and give ya some love! It's been a bit hectic for me, but I'm trying to slowly get around and visit some blogs today. I also had to say I used the same image twice today! I think she represents Thanksgiving so well and your card is beautiful. Will definitely try to play this week.
Have a wonderful week my friend!
